I figured that would get a BSG fan like yourself excited (and I mean excited).

And James Caan's kid is no James Caan. Tough job being the son of a hard-ass actor like that.

AAAAHAHAHA!

You know what SS? This is what your nomme de plume was invented for....posting things like this and not needing to apologise afterwards :) You got that covered.

1) It looks like they blew the budget on the pilot.

2) The cast are nothing more than sci fi cast offs after really succesful shows (I smell bean counters)

3) As good as the show looks, it's not needed.

4) I don't get what Burn Notice hasn't covered.

Personally, I'd say we need another Magnum but Burn Notice has all angles covered. It's a sweet show with some cookey shit thrown in. This looks like a Michael Mann script condensed to 3 minutes and directed by Michael Bay. No thank you.
There's been so many 'serious' shows over the past couple of years that it would be nice to see some more shows like Chuck and Burn Notice (although Chucks viewing figures says otherwise - it's still a fucking good show).

A little antithesis please.

So....anyone catching this crime series re-birth?

I have to say, it's not that bad, a little too Michael Mann in places but it's got a good cast and I might actually eat my words is then next couple of eps prove to be enjoyable as well.

:oops:

Good point about Burn Notice. If I had to choose between the two shows,
it's Burn Notice FTW.

I'd agree with you Vic.

What did you think of Hawaii 5-0 though?

Well, its an improvement over the original. I've always liked Daniel Dae Kim's work & Grace Park is tres cute.
But I like the attitude in BN, and its got Bruce Campbell...both shows have tropical ( or semi-tropical) locations,
which equals a tie in that category.
Yeah, its the attitude in BN that trumps the pretty standard buddy cop-tude of 5-O.
